Boost Productivity

Today, let’s talk about two super helpful tools you might not be using enough.

These tools are right there on your phone or Apple Watch, and they’re really easy to use.

I’m going to show you how they can help you get more done without making things complicated.

Timer Trick

First up is the timer on your phone or watch.

You know, the one you might use when cooking or doing exercises.

But have you ever thought of using it to help you stop wasting time on social media?

Social media can suck you in for hours if you’re not careful.

Setting a timer for, say, 30 or 45 minutes when you start scrolling can help you take back control.

Once the timer goes off, it’s your cue to stop and move on to something else.

This timer trick isn’t just for social media.

Want to read more?

Set your timer for 30 minutes and just read until it rings.

Or if you’re writing a book or working on a project, use the timer to keep focused work time.

It’s a simple tool, but it can do wonders for keeping you on track.

Do Not Disturb

The second tool is “Do Not Disturb” (DND).

You might use it while driving or sleeping to avoid interruptions, but it’s also great for other times you need to focus.

When you’re reading, working, or doing anything that needs your full attention, switch on DND.

It stops calls, texts, and notifications from breaking your concentration.

And if you’re worried about missing something important, you can set up special contacts who can still get through.

I love using DND so much that my phone is on it from 7:45 at night until 8 in the morning.

This helps me avoid distractions and focus on what’s important. It’s a simple thing, but like the timer, using DND can really help you be more productive.

Both these tools – the timer and Do Not Disturb – are easy to overlook.

They’re not flashy or fancy, but they are very powerful in helping you manage your time better.

In a world that loves making things complicated, these tools remind us that sometimes, simple is best.

Using them can help you avoid procrastination and get more done.

So why not give them a try and see how much more productive you can be?
